DropBear Codex Caching Library

The DropBear Codex Caching Library offers a robust and flexible caching solution tailored for .NET applications. It supports diverse caching strategies, such as InMemory, SQLite, and FasterKV caches. Enhanced with features like cache preloading, dynamic fallback mechanisms, tag-based invalidation, automatic cache refresh, encrypted cache storage, and secure cache access, it aims to optimize performance and ensure data security across .NET applications.


  • Versatile Caching Strategies: Utilize InMemory, SQLite, and FasterKV caching based on your application's specific requirements.
  • Cache Preloading: Elevate performance by preloading critical data into the cache upon application startup.
  • Dynamic Cache Fallback Mechanism: Seamlessly fallback to alternative caches or direct data sources in the event of cache misses or operational failures.
  • Encrypted Cache Storage: Secure sensitive information with encrypted cache entries.

Getting Started


  • .NET Core 3.1 or .NET 5/6/7+
  • Microsoft.Extensions.Hosting integration for leveraging .NET's generic host capabilities.


Incorporate the DropBear Codex Caching Library into your project by adding it as a NuGet package dependency or by directly referencing the project.

dotnet add package DropBear.Codex.Caching


  1. Set Up Caching Options: Initialize the caching library within your Startup.cs or an equivalent configuration setup, specifying your caching strategy preferences.
public void ConfigureServices(IServiceCollection services)
    ConfigureCachingOptions(services, Configuration);

private static void ConfigureCachingOptions(IServiceCollection services, IConfiguration configuration)
        services.AddCodexCaching(configuration, configure =>
            configure.FasterKVOptions.Enabled = true;
            configure.SQLiteOptions.Enabled = true;
            configure.InMemoryOptions.Enabled = true;

            // Set the default cache duration to 5 minutes
            configure.DefaultCacheDurationMinutes = TimeSpan.FromMinutes(5);

            // Set the encryption options
            configure.EncryptionOptions.Enabled = true;
            configure.EncryptionOptions.EncryptionApplicationName = "CodexCaching";
            configure.EncryptionOptions.KeyStoragePath = @"C:\Temp\Keys";

            // Set the serialization options
            configure.SerializationOptions.Enabled = true;
            configure.SerializationOptions.Format = SerializationFormat.MessagePack;

            // Set the compression options
            configure.CompressionOptions.Enabled = true;
            configure.CompressionOptions.Algorithm = CompressionAlgorithm.LZ4;

            // Set the SQLite options
            configure.SQLiteOptions.CacheName = "SQLiteCache";

            // Set the InMemory options
            configure.InMemoryOptions.CacheName = "InMemoryCache";

            // Set the FasterKV options
            configure.FasterKVOptions.CacheName = "FasterKVCache";
        },preloaders: new List<ICachePreloader> { new MyCachePreloader() });
  1. Incorporate Cache Preloaders: For employing cache preloading, define preloaders and add them during configuration.
services.AddCodexCaching(options => { /* Configuration details */ }, preloaders: new List<ICachePreloader> { new MyCachePreloader() });


Leverage ICacheService within your services or controllers to manage cache interactions efficiently.

public class MyService
    private readonly ICacheService _cacheService;

    public MyService(ICacheService cacheService)
        _cacheService = cacheService;

    public async Task<MyData> GetDataAsync(string key)
        return await _cacheService.GetAsync<MyData>(key, () => FetchDataFromStore(key));
